4 Simple Moves To Rev Up Your Metabolism

Would you believe us if we told you you could work out for 10 minutes and burn calories for hours? The following routine created by Larysa DiDio for Prevention works every major part of your body and is crazy easy to do. Here's the low down: Perform each exercise for 45 seconds, resting for 30 seconds between moves. Repeat the entire circuit twice. Are you ready? 1. Chair Squat into Biceps Curl   Stand in front of a chair with both toes facing forward, feet hip-distance apart, a dumbbell in each hand. Shift your weight into your heels and squat until your butt taps the chair, then stand and curl both weights toward your shoulders. Don't forget to squeeze your butt as you stand. 2.  Knee Lifts With Alternate Arm Raises   Stand holding a weight in each hand at shoulder height. Raise right knee to chest and left arm overhead, then switch to the other side. Continue alternating opposite arm and opposite leg. Keep your belly engaged and your chest lifted. 3. Step-Outs   Stand with your feet together, knees slightly bent, hands on hips with a dumbbell in each hand. Bend left knee and extend right leg behind you. Quickly step right foot back to meet left, then immediately extend left leg behind you. Continue alternating legs. Squeeze through your butt as you extend your leg and keep your abs engaged. 4. Side-to-Side Lunge with a Press   Stand in front of a chair with legs out wide, toes facing out and heels in, hands resting lightly on the back of a chair. Bend your right knee and lunge to the right, placing your weight into your right heel. Straighten your right leg to come back to center and raise arms overhead. Repeat on the other side. Continue alternating sides. Move quickly to increase your heart rate, but don't sacrifice your form. Well, that's simple enough. Who doesn't have 10 minutes to spare? Source: Prevention
